Additional Info

My pride and joy, but it will kill me. Lovely RX8 in silver with black alloys.
It is a bit too quick on the getaway for me. I regularly sh## myself.Lovely F1 sound, revs cleanly to 9,500, kicks at about 4,500, 6 speed box. Break 100 while coasting as you  change into third.This car is actually quite tame if driven carefully and cautiously. A good looker and a head turner, but safe and sedate if that is what you want. But these cars need to be driven, hard, and every now and then you turn a corner and see a gap you know you can easily get in to, but to make sure you simply can't help flooring it. And back into the seat you go, hang on to the steering wheel for life itself, and hope you don't mess yourself. Bugger..................
My wife is sure I will have a nasty accident soon, and as I get older I am begging to think I will to. She will not come out with me in the car. This is definitely not a car for drivers pushing 70 ! (Which now is me).The body has done nearly 150.000. And has a myriad of small knocks and bumps. Nothing major, hardly noticeable. But as we all know these motors are only good for 150,000. This car has a rebuilt motor which has now done nearly 30,000, so plenty of life left in it yet.  I have pictures of the old motor strip down if you are interested.While I have had it, it has been serviced and well maintained with regular oil changes and filters, and it has been run as a pre mix, with 100ml, to a tank of 95.It still has the cat, but has a custom rear exhaust. Sounds amazing not too loud but just crisp and tight. I do still have the original back section hanging in my garage which you are welcome to if you buy and want it. In case you decide you can't handle the sound. Or the neighbors complain.Currently around 2 months** reg, and I know it will pass a RWC so I will include getting it done in the sale.Sat in my drive in Parkdale if you would like to be amazed, and are willing to risk my driving, please contact me to arrange an experience you will never forget. Aim for Friday this week onward as I am away for a few days this week.My price is low for what you are getting so please don't ask me to go any lower. We all know what these are worth with a good motor, so get round the bank and front with some cash.And for the enthusiasts, yes it starts fine when hot. And all recalls are up to date.
**  Just checked and the rego is current till 6th September 2020. So 4 months not 2.
